Knee Arthroscopy (Arthroscopic / Keyhole Surgery)
What is Knee Arthroscopy (Keyhole Surgery)
Arthroscopy (Arthroscopic / Keyhole Surgery) is a common surgical procedure in which a high definition camera is inserted through a small incision, and images are projected onto a high resolution monitor. This provides a clear view of the inside of the knee and helps orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and treat knee problems.
Arthroscopy for the knee is most commonly used for:
- Removal or repair of torn meniscal cartilage
- Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament
- Trimming of torn pieces of articular cartilage
- Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage
- Removal of inflamed synovial tissue
